Business performance varies within farm types

A chart shows mean average income and the average income of the highest and lowest performers for LFA sheep, cereal and dairy farms.

This chart show the mean average income of farms and the average high and low performers to understand the spread in farm business performance.

Some farms have high business incomes but others are making large losses. For example, in dairy farming, low performing farms are losing on average £42,400 while the high performers have an average income around £133,700.

Dairy farms have the highest spread but also have on average one of the highest farm incomes. Cereal farms have lower farm income and the gap between high and low performers is not as great. LFA Sheep farms have low farm incomes and the spread of business incomes is also low.
